I wouldn't call it bias, but a perpetual lazy narrative, that basically boils down to the fact that very few people, pundits and journalists seem able to grasp the fact that Spurs in 2017 is different from Spurs in 2008.
Now how one judges that "success" depends on the media's narrative, and most of the driven media nowdays are ex players coming from clubs that have spent by the hundreds of millions to win. That is the crux of the matter.
If half of those prejudice journalists had read Poch's book (and i finished it last night) then they would understand that all that glitters does not have to cost the price of gold, and that hard work and dedication can produce success. I think that Poch has produced seventeen Internationals since he joined Southampton, and for the money spent to acquire each one of those players you may have got a whole Pogba for.
That is what the press cannot understand, refuse to and are looking quite stupid beyond reproach for not even attempting to do so.
